MONOLITHIC ZIRCONIA SINCE FOREVER

WHY CHOOSE MONOLITHIC?

Sintered dental zirconia has whiteness and translucency that very much resembles a natural tooth. Therefore, it is easy to achieve very aesthetic result in full contour zirconia restorations.
Monolithic zirconia restoration is the most solid restoration possible. As there is no chemical bond between zirconia and ceramic, any porcelain on functional surface might delaminate in the course of time. This is especially true for posterior crowns and implant based restorations.
Sintered zirconia is a very dense and highly acid proof material which prevents the absorption and surface accumulation of pollutants (like plaque). Monolithic zirconia restorations give a patient amazing “clean” sensation and greatly contribute to healthy tissues. The main objection to monolithic restorations comes from the perception that they are too abrasive for the opposing natural teeth. We should

Understanding Zirconia

Zirconia made a significant appearance on the dental horizon about 5 years ago. It provided an alternative for all ceramic crowns and bridges. Today, a milling procedure is the only reliable way to create zirconia restorative components for dental use. The availability of computer numerical controlled machines (CNC) allows for highly automated end-to-end component design using computer aided design and computer aided manufacture (CAD/CAM) programs. The programs produce a computer file that is interpreted to extract the commands needed to operate a particular machine, and then loaded into the CNC machines for production of the restoration coping or framework.

When All Else Fails

The following article is a case history from the office of Dr. Sylvio Caro, a prosthodontist from Westmount, Canada.

The patient, a 72 year old male, arrived to our clinic with a failing maxillary restoration on implants (hybrid bar on 10 Zimmer implants). When the restoration was removed for evaluation the reason for the failure became apparent.

White Possibilities

The case presented here is one in which a novel solution was achieved utilizing zirconia in a very challenging situation. The patient is a 70+ year old woman who had a history of multiple implant procedures over the past 18 years and had never made it past the temporary restorations due to complications with the implants.

Bei der Patientin handelte es sich um eine über 70 Jahre alte Frau, die in den vorangegangenen 18 Jahren schon mehrfach implantologisch behandelt worden war. Aufgrund von Komplikationen mit ihren Implantaten war sie nie über das Stadium der provisorischen Versorgung hinausgekommen.

The Zirconia Experience - Technical Insights

Диоксид циркония (ZrO2), или просто цирконий, — это кристал- лический оксид циркония белого цвета. На данный момент он является наиболее изучаемым керамическим материалом в стоматологии. Многие специалисты внедряют этот материал в свою практику, причем с различным успехом. Главный вопрос, которым сейчас задаются все специалисты, звучит так: является ли использо- вание циркония новой тенденцией или временной причудой?
